Wow, Jindrich, very nice! Thanks for sharing!

I especially like the Pizzicato small vase and bowl (not so fond of basket-type things :) )
I didn't know that the blue/gold items were also part of the Pizzicato range, looked different to me in shape and colours...
Was the Pizzicato range later expanded like the Rhapsody range?

I doo not know exactly whether  Pizzicato was produced also later in Karlovarske sklo, but I suppose not.
The blue at pictures looks much brighter than in reality, but the blue is different from one in another pieces.

Jindrich:

I've assumed Pizzicato was made at Karlovarske sklo. I've got two pieces with a Moser label on them. I wrote to Moser asking and after seeking clarification of the first reply, I got this from Veronika:

The Moser glassworks has been producing hand-made unleaded glassware and
has its typical  design. In the communist regime (about 1950´s) the
glasswork Mstišov (located in the North Bohemia) was connected to Moser
as the area of Mstišov glasswork was step by step used for mining. That
is why the Mstišov production (its metallurgical production) was made in
the Moser factory but under the trade mark “Karlovarské sklo”. After the
year 1980 the glasswork Mstišov with its employees became extinct and
the assortment was taken over the Cvikov glassworks. This glasswork
Cvikov became later extinct too.

It means that the label Moser should not be on your glass vase as it was
produced by the Mstišov glassworks, but whose production was on the
ground of  Moser glasswork.

It's not a definitive proof, but it does strongly suggest that Pizzicato was made at Karlovarske Sklo.

Thank you David,
the lable with Karlovarské is good proof.
As ussual, the anwer from Moser is not very exact in case of this free hand glass production.
Mstisov factory has been closed not in 50ties but in 1965. Seems to me that for young people from customer service this makes no difference, it is in deep past for them :-)

I have got simmilar message about Rhapsody from them, mentioning Cvikov glasswork. This glasswork is not to know to me and for the meanwhile I have not find any record about it.

Very interesting, thank you!
I still wonder about those two very different designs both being part of the Pizzicato range; the gold/blue items don't seem to have much in common with the multicolour pieces but the small air bubbles...
My vase and Jindrich's bowl, vase and basket are all depicted in CGR 5/6 1960, but neither of the other designs.
